Drake declared that his son, Adonis, is already better than one of the masters in a sweet Instagram post on Wednesday.
The rapper showed off a framed photo of a colorful finger painting his 1-year-old son gave him for Christmas, captioning it “Adonis > Picasso don’t @ me,” adding a blue heart and Christmas tree emoji.
(Champagne) Papi, indeed.
He shares his son with former adult film star Sophie Brussaux, who previously came forward to say that Drake was the father of her child, citing text messages from the rapper asking her to get an abortion as evidence.
The two were previously linked together after photos emerged of them dining out in 2017. Pusha-T mentioned Brussaux by name on his track:
Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother.
Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her.
A baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rap.
We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts.
You are hiding a child, let that boy come home.
Deadbeat mothafucka playin’ border patrol, ooh.
Adonis is your son,
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that’s real.
Love that baby, respect that girl.
Forget she’s a porn star, let her be your world.
In a track called “Emotionless,” Drake insisted that he was never trying to keep his son a secret.
“Look at the way we live / I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid,” he raps in the song. “From empty souls who just wake up and look to debate / until you staring at your seed, you can never relate.”
The rapper spoke about breaking the news that he’d fathered a child to his mother ― and what it’s like having a son ― on an October episode of LeBron James’ show “The Shop.”
“And now I’m just really excited to be a great father, I have a son. He’s a beautiful boy,” Drake revealed. “He’s got crazy blue eyes. No matter what happens, I have unconditional love for the mother of my child because I want him to love his mother, and I have to project that energy.”
